FINANCIAL AID ASSISTANCE
NEW for 2018-19
Deadline: January 31, 2018 - Please read!
All financial aid assistance offered to Our Lady of the Visitation students & families must be applied for through FACTS. This includes assistance from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Education Foundation (One Faith, One Hope, One Love) as well as assistance from the OLV Education Fund.
To be considered for financial aid for the 2018-19 school year you must apply before January 31, 2018 through FACTS.
Both the Archdiocese and Our Lady of the Visitation financial aid programs begin with a single application through FACTS.
No financial aid or assistance will be given without first applying through FACTS prior to January 31, 2018.
This is a change from prior years. In the past, families had until May 1, to apply for financial aid.
We have made a significant change to our FACTS application to enable our school families to easily meet the January 31, 2018 deadline.
Previous application years required our school families to supply their most recent tax return. For this application cycle all families will be required to submit their 2016 tax return information. Our financial aid application will now align with that of the area catholic high schools as well as with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati requirement that the prior year tax information be submitted to FACTS.
For example, to apply for financial aid for 2018-19 the parishioner's 2016 tax return information will need to be uploaded to FACTS. Under the old application process OLV would have required that the parishioner's 2017 return be submitted before Our Lady of the Visitation would make a financial aid award. This change will allow all families needing assistance to timely apply for the funds available through the Catholic Education Fund as well as the OLV Education Fund. Application by January 31, 2018 will also allow OLV to award financial aid earlier than June.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Leslee in the Parish Office, 922-2056 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Families who do not apply prior to January 31, 2018 will not be eligible to receive financial aid assistance for the 2018-19 school year. FACTS link
